Secure and Functional Teeth-In-a-Day! 

A Natural Look and Fixed Solution 

Some of the challenges denture-wearers experience regularly are: sore spots in the mouth from dentures rubbing on the gums (especially the lower denture), a decrease in bite force, loose dentures that move around and cause embarrassing moments in public, difficulty speaking (whistling and clicking of denture teeth), and an inability to eat a variety of foods. 

Many people who wear false teeth also complain that their food tastes bland. This is because the roof of the mouth (or palate) is covered by the upper denture, interfering with taste buds and the ability to taste food while eating. As a result, many denture-wearers over-salt their food. In combination with a limited food selection and not enough fresh vegetables or fruits, too much salt intake can pose serious health issues such as high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, heart complications, nutritional deficiencies, and chronic digestive problems to name just a few potential health risks. 

Many denture wearers suffer silently from emotional distress. Loose, ill-fitting dentures can cause people to become very self-conscious, introverted, and insecure. 

If asked, most denture-wearers would admit to wishing they could have healthy natural teeth again, which is impossible. However, the next closest thing to natural teeth used to be conventional dental implants and crowns, which can be financially prohibitive as costs may reach up to $50,000 per jaw. This traditional method of dental implants is not only very expensive, but also requires placement of many implants, bone grafting, sinus lifts, and long healing and recovery periods. The whole procedure from start to finish could take up to two years to complete. 

Now there exists a much more affordable technique for fixed, non-removable teeth that are fully functional and minimally invasive (meaning very little pain or discomfort) with only one treatment session. 

This technique is changing the lives of denture-wearers all over the world. Coined “teeth-in-a-day,” this procedure has seen very high success rates on thousands of patients in Canada and in Europe, where the procedure was developed, as well as in the United States with a success rate in the high 90 percent range. This “All-On-Four” technique converts the patient’s denture into non-removable, fully functional, fixed teeth in one day. There is no painful and lengthy healing period, no large bulky denture rubbing on the gums or covering the roof of the mouth, and, best of all, you never have to take your teeth out of your mouth! 

This treatment allows patients to regain their quality of life by enabling the denture-wearer to feel confident eating in public, dating, smiling, and laughing without fear of their denture falling out, or having to take them out to clean them. The freedom to brush your teeth in a natural way is something that no longer needs to be taken for granted. 

If you feel self-conscious about the way you look without your teeth, or you crave to eat what you want, when and where you want to, and be able to taste and enjoy your food again, this may be the solution for you. 

This process takes place with our team of denture and implant experts who work together to take you from dentures into fixed teeth in the same day!
